List of Serv-U events and event details

Table of contents

Updated April 11, 2017

Overview

This article discusses the Serv-U events functionality and lists the available Serv-U events and their details.

Environment

All Serv-U versions

Detail

With Serv-U supporting custom event handling, administrators can receive real-time updated information about the state of their file server. By licensing Serv-U MFT Server and activating this functionality, users can configure different types of triggers to activate actions within Serv-U. For details on how to configure Serv-U events, see Configure Serv-U events.

 

The following lists all events and their functions:

Server events

  • Server Start - Triggered by Serv-U starting, whether by starting the Serv-U service or starting Serv-U as an application.
  • Server Stop - Triggered by Serv-U shutting down, whether from service or application-level status. This event will only trigger for graceful stops.

Server and domain events

  • Domain Start - Triggered by a Serv-U Domain starting, via the Enable Domain setting in the Domain Details > Settings menu or as part of normal server startup.
  • Domain Stop - Triggered by a Serv-U Domain stopping, via the Enable Domain setting in the Domain Details > Settings menu or as part of normal server startup.
